After that when you see the dialog box then click on “from beginning to end” under range to import text. If you want to select only a few frames then, check “Selected frames only”. The option is for that to easily edit your file. If you want to do on your animated GIF file then go to your starting frame then hold shift and drag the slider to the endpoint to tell that a selection had been highlighted.

  • From this, your video will now be shown in layers and then you can export your GIF file.
  • In your video if you had over 60 frames per second then you should check “Limit to every X frames” and you can type a number over x value.
  • The value of X will be selected from which you want to make it faster and image size lower than others even low quality too by dividing your X frame rate. Then you can apply a frame rate around 15-30.

Then you can go to your timeline in your window dialog box. Check your animation timeline and remove some layers if you want to remove in such way. There is the timeline and if you want? Then you can add some new frames and something more.
